Introduction:

Pulmonary function tests involve the evaluation of the respiratory system for the identification of the severity of the impairment of lungs. There are several tests that are used to distinguish between different types of lung disorders.

Please refer to Clinical Application Case-2 for further information.

Explanation

In the given case, obstructive as well as restrictive lung disorder is illustrated. This is because a large amount of bronchial secretion was produced by inhaling fumes of paint and the consequent streptococcal infection. Mucous pooling and plugging of bronchial airways in the lower left lobe were also observed and these were demonstrated by loud bronchial breath sounds over this region. However, primarily, it was demonstrated that the patient had obstructive lung disorder only. Lung expansion therapy and aggressive bronchial hygiene therapy reversed the respiratory problems of the patient.

In both the obstructive lung disorder and restrictive lung disorder, VC (vital capacity), RV (residual volume), and IC (inspiratory capacity) are decreased...
